Product/food shooters...GET THIS LENS!

17 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I do come from many years of view camera experience but this lens is not hard to get the hang of. Increase depth of focus... Yep. Selective focus... No problem. No you can't do tilt and shift on the same plane but as stated by others you can get it on the same plane by sending it to Nikon.
  • Pros: Sharp Tilts
  • Cons: No Rotating Tilt And Shift

21 May 2013
  • Excerpt: My interest in photography started in the 1960 as a serious amateur, with both 35mm film and 4x5 view cameras. I was fascinated by both photographing small animals and architecture, sort of the opposite poles of the art. I ended up using mostly a Leica and then NIkon F.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Ultimate in Macro Control

Food Lover, B&H Photo
30 January 2013
  • Excerpt: This lens is sharp and easy to use if you know your camera movements. I've used it for food shots and was able to shift the plane of focus to a narrow plane running diagonally through the frame, which made all the difference in the shot.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Bulky, Manual focus only

Easier than expected

Adorama

  • Excerpt: I have used this lens for close focus flower work and some outdoor images of frost on leaves. In the week since it came I have found it to be easier to use than expected with my Nikon D800. Live view and review of the histogram both made for easy exposure.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable
